Vacation 2017 - Radio Disney

I recently got back from a fun, two-week vacation in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico and southern California. The first week in Cabo, we rented one floor of a house overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

Our rental came with a car, so each day we planned one main activity and attempted to find our way through the dusty, speed bump-filled streets of this city on the tip of the Baja Peninsula.

We went horseback riding on the beach.  Our tour leader looked just like Pancho Villa.

One day we chartered a boat to take us snorkeling as well as around the beautiful rock formations including Land's End aka the Arch of Cabo San Lucas.

Later in the week we went parasailing around these same beautiful landmarks.

Week two was spent with family in Wildomar, California which is about an hour from both Los Angeles and San Diego.  Temperature records were being broken all over southern California when we arrived.  It was 110 degrees in Wildomar the day we got there.
We hit Legoland, the San Diego Zoo, Del Mar Beach at Camp Pendleton (twice) and Laguna Beach.  And, as is mandatory, (especially with the grandkids in tow) Disneyland.

Radio Disney was launched in November, 1996 in four markets--Minneapolis, Atlanta, Salt Lake City and Birmingham, Alabama.  The network for preteen listeners existed primarily on AM stations even though it had a music intensive format.  At one time Radio Disney could be heard on dozens of stations nationwide but, after a major selloff in 2014, currently exists mostly on FM station's HD sub-channels.
